    thanks, buthttp://shahsmerdis.com/CoreTemp/CoreTemp... is not for Intel core , its for AMD

    Thanks for the info gnormhurst but it still could not read the CPU or any other temp.
    I started to think that DELL didnt put any temp sensors on Dimension 5100 motherboard.

    Computer keeps on restarting after 5 hours of operation. I expect CPU temp to reach max level. What can I do about it. Dell does not seem to allow checks of CPU temp. Should I replace the fan?

    Sorry, I saw"Dell", "5100" and "temperature" and immediately assumed it was the Dell Inspiron 5100, laptop, which I have been struggling with this week. This laptop has a reputation for overheating and shutting down. The fanGUI code apparently only works on laptops(?). It works on my D620.

    Yours is the Dimension 5100 desktop. (Why, Dell, did you use the same number of two completely different machines???) Sorry to mislead.

Can you upgrade cpu in dell 15 i5559-4682slv to i7 ?


It is almost impossible to upgrade proprietary makes like Dell and HP. The are big enough to have motherboards made for them manufactured on price point. This means that they are not built with upgrade in mind. Also the cases are made to fit their motherboard and theirs only.

Go to a computer builder and get a good case, buy a good quality motherboard and equip it with what you can afford. In two years you can upgrade as processors have moved on. Two years after that, you can swap out the motherboard, processor and memory.

How to enable bluetooth


Your computer has to have a bluetooth radio. You can check
Control Panel > System and Security > Device Manager
Do you see a Bluetooth Radio listed?

If not, you don't have BlueTooth on your computer so you will have to add a BlueTooth device by plugging one into a USB port.

If you have a BlueTooth radio, go to Control Panel > Hardware and Sound > Device and Printers > Add a Bluetooth Device

This option is used to connect a blue tooth device (e.g. bluetooth headphons) to your laptop through your bluetooth radio.

See this Windows web page for more information.
Set up Bluetooth enabled device

I will respond to any additional questions you have.

How to remove a bios password from hp 6720s


Why can't people put a problem in the right catagory?
Generally, you can remove the Bios backup battery or use the jumper on the motherboard to reset the bios completely.
Google "reset bios" to get an idea of how to do it, or do the same in Youtube for a video. Lots of them are out there.

Removing bluetooth chip


Without knowing what the desktop computer motherboard is, I\'d only be guessing as to location of Wi-Fi chipset.
However even if I knew the motherboard manufacturer name, and model number; the point is Moot.

A) You remove that Wi-Fi chip, and kiss the motherboard goodbye.
It\'s designed into the circuitry of the motherboard.

Isn\'t going to be jumper wires taking it\'s place, and making connections to circuit traces on the motherboard.

B) Do you have a wireless router?
Dunno.
Do you have a wireless connection set up?
No.

You can use just a LAN connection. (Hard wired)

C) Suggest if having a Bluetooth option on your motherboard is not an option then use a different motherboard that doesn\'t have that option.
